I am a newbie to VS.  But in Access I was able to import a subform and make it link to data in the main form where it only displayed that data.  Or I was able to add data that ties to the main form.  Is there away to do that in VS?  can someone give me information or direction in doing that?

THanks

While it would be great to say yes this is possible with .NET & Visual Studio, I would be lying. Visual Studio & .NET provide a vast array of libraries and tools to assist with increasing a developers performance, however what it is not, is a 4GL language/tool.

Despite your productivity increase for building world class applications, .NET and Visual Studio are not 4GL languages/tools such as Access, FoxPro, DBase and the likes. They are actually 3GL which implies that it doesn't provide such tight knitting from within the language or core libraries.

You may however find a component out there that does that. Here are some resources to get you started.

Look into UserControls, that might be what you are looking for.
